The 1990 [[MadeForTVMovie made-for-television]] film adaptation of the adventure novel ''Literature/TreasureIsland'', which stars Creator/ChristianBale as Jim Hawkins and Creator/CharltonHeston as Long John Silver.

A map for the treasure of Captain Flint, a feared buccaneer on the Spanish Main, is discovered among the possessions of an old pirate, and an expedition sets forth to claim it. Howver, Flint's former crew manages to slip among it, and upon reaching the island, they try to claim the treasure for themselves.

!!This film has examples of:

* TheAlcoholic: Billy Bones spends his days drinking rum, which eventually leads to his death after receiving the black spot.
* TheAloner: Ben Gunn and several associates tried to find Flint's treasure by themselves without his map. Frustrated by being unable to find the thing, his partners marooned him on the island and left. He has been on the island for over three years before the events of the film.
* AlliterativeName: Billy Bones, the brown old seaman who makes Admiral Benbow Inn his home.
* BigBad: Long John Silver, the leader of the Flint's former crew and the rest of the mutineers aboard ''Hispaniola''.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Upon aboard the vessel, Squire Trelawney makes a mention how a child could sail the ''Hispaniola''. Later in the film, Jim Hawkins, the youngest of the crew, sneaks into into the ship, and with a help of his pirate captive Israel Hands, sails it to the other side of the eponymous island to hide it from Silver's men.
* GrievousBottleyHarm: As he drunkenly fights his fellow guard aboard ''Hispaniola'', Israel Hands breaks a bottle over the guy's head.
* GunsAkimbo: Jim Hawkins carries two flint-pistols that he found on Billy Bones' seachest on his person, and later has blast with them both Israel hand swith them as threatens to kill him.
* HandicappedBadass: Silver lost his left leg to a broadside a long time ago, but still manages to kill a man much younger than him in a fight.
* InCaseYouForgotWhoWroteIt: The opening titles present the film as ''Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island''.
* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:In the end, Long John Silver Manages to make his escape from ''Hispaniola'' on a boat with a small portion of treasure with him]].
* PirateParrot: Silver's parrot, which is mostly seen sitting on his shoulder.
* ThePlace: The eponymous Treasure Island, which is even called by that name by the map pointing towards it.
* TheSiege: The honest men of ''Hispaniola'' discover an old stockade in the island, and make it their stronghold. And after a parley, the pirates are soon upon them with swords, muskets and a cannon, since they have the map.
* SlashedThroat: For Silver's men, the first morning on the island is a rough one as they found few of their number with their throats slit, courtesy of Ben Gunn.
* SwordFight: The terse meeting between Billy Bones and his old shipmate Black Dog about the treasure map soon erupts into a brief swordfight.
